Two weeks after Air India took possession of Boeing South Carolina’s first 787 Dreamliner, the next two to roll out of the North Charleston plant have been taking flights of their own.

On Sunday morning, the third locally assembled 787 flew for the first time, a roughly two-hour journey that looped out over the Atlantic Ocean, according to flight-tracking website FlightAware.

Then on Monday afternoon, the second S.C.-built 787 flew a similar pattern, according to FlightAware. That second plane, known internally as LN 54, is due for delivery to Air India this month.

Boeing confirmed the flights Monday.
